Griffin Concert Association presents Prima Trio

FROM STAFF REPORTS

The international award-winning chamber trio, The Prima Trio, will perform live at the Griffin Auditorium on Monday, Mar. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Single tickets for this performance are $20 with all children admitted free when accompanying a paid adult.

Founded in 2004,  the Prima Trio triumphed at the prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition in 2007, winning the coveted Grand Prize (out of no fewer than 138 entries from across the country and around the world), as well as the Gold Medal in the Senior Division. The Prima Trio actually plays four instruments. Gulrukh (Gulia) Gurevich who was born in Uzbekistan to a distinguished musical family, switches between violin and viola. Gulia made her solo début with the Uzbekistan National Symphony Orchestra at the age of 14 and her conducting début at the age of 15.

Boris Allekhverdyan, who was born in Baku, Azerbaijan of Armenian descent, plays clarinet. A first-prize winner of the Hellam Competition, the Tuesday Musical Competition and the Oberlin Concerto Competition, Boris has appeared as a soloist with the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, the Kremlin Chamber Orchestra and the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra.

Anastasia Dedik, who was born in Russia, plays piano. A concert pianist, Anastasia was the first prize winner of numerous piano competitions in the US.

The Trio’s repertoire ranges from beloved chamber music standards to such exotic gems as Armenian composer Aram Khatchaturian’s soulful Trio for Violin, Clarinet and Piano to S. I. Glick’s festive “The Klezmer’s Wedding.” The “grand finale” of every concert is “Serenade” by American composer Peter Schickele (aka P.D.Q. Bach)—its uproarious, hoedown-like finale never fails to draw a “laughing ovation.”

The Griffin Area Concert Association has been presenting nationally acclaimed performers to the community for 55 years. This all-volunteer nonprofit organization is committed to enriching the cultural life of the Griffin area through live performances.
